### Angle Between the Magnetic Aaxis and Geographical Axis of the Earth

Any of the two locations on Earth where the planet’s axis of rotation touches its surface is considered a geographical pole. The South Pole is located in Antarctica, while the North Pole is in the Arctic Ocean.

With respect to the geographical axis, the axis of the Earth’s magnetic field is inclined at an angle of around 11.3 degrees.

Summary:

## The angle between the magnetic axis and geographical axis of the earth is _____? (a) 10.3°, (b) 13.6°, (c) 19°, (d) 11.3°
